Hazardous materials (hazmat) can be a risk to health, safety, and property when shipped. The Department of Transportation (DOT) decides what items are considered hazmat.

The Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) are a set of rules created by The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA).

Please note: 49 CFR 172.704(d) of the HMR requires each hazmat employer to create and retain a record certifying the current training of each hazmat employee. It is the responsibility of the hazmat employer to complete additional company-specific training in order to formally certify each learner. Trainers may use the J. J. Keller-issued certificate for compliance with the recordkeeping requirements in Section 172.704(d)(3). The trainer and the trainer’s company are considered the “person providing the training” in Section 172.704(d)(4). Because of this, trainers should maintain additional records documenting a description or copy of the additional company-specific training materials provided to each learner.

  • Regulations Covered: 49 CFR Parts 107-180 and 49 CFR Part 397
  • Intended Audience: All hazmat employees, in all industries, who are responsible for any aspect of shipping or transporting hazardous materials
